Famous quotes related to twentieth century:

    One of the peculiar sins of the twentieth century which we’ve developed to a very high level is the sin of credulity. It has been said that when human beings stop believing in God they believe in nothing. The truth is much worse: they believe in anything.
    Malcolm Muggeridge (1903–1990)

    Advertising is the greatest art form of the twentieth century.
    Marshall McLuhan (1911–1980)

    War is bestowed like electroshock on the depressive nation; thousands of volts jolting the system, an artificial galvanizing, one effect of which is loss of memory. War comes at the end of the twentieth century as absolute failure of imagination, scientific and political. That a war can be represented as helping a people to ‘feel good’ about themselves, their country, is a measure of that failure.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)

    A writer is in danger of allowing his talent to dull who lets more than a year go past without finding himself in his rightful place of composition, the small single unluxurious ‘retreat’ of the twentieth century, the hotel bedroom.
    Cyril Connolly (1903–1974)

    ... the nineteenth century believed in science but the twentieth century does not. Not.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)
